Chromeless Windows in Opera!!

Hi, would anyone be able to tell me if you can make a new chromeless window work in opera? And if not how would you go about removing the top and left border that opera seems to insert in the regular window it pops up in its place? Hope this is clear.

Chrome? That's Mozilla. Completely different product.

First, welcome to the forums.

Was there something I'm missing here in your question? (eg: am I the one clueless here? hehe)

Me too! The trick is not to let on ;)

I didn't know what a chromeless window was, it seems to be a pop-up that is more customisable that usual. Had a quick look and it seems that it is IE4+ and NN6 only, anybody confirm?

no Brett_Tabke, you didn't miss anything... I can confirm I'm the clueless one! I have since read that only ie will show it as it should be.. even netscape 6 just opens a standard window, and opera opens a standard "skewwiff" one. Thanks anyway!

Brett,

This is off-topic, but you might want to add oprah as one of your keywords because I just read a post on a site where someone asked if something would work in netscape and oprah. LOL.

Oh ya, I was all over that last year, but the traffic was so untargetted that it was all one-hit-wonders - so I quit.

OK, you got me that "skewwiff" word. I thought it was probably some hip-hop thing I was just too old to know about. So I did what any self respecting geek would do, I searched on Google. Only 109 pages. There now, I feel much better.

In case I'm not the only ignorant one, here's from the Google Cache of eol.ca (the page is a 404):


SKEW-WHIFF
Also: SKEW-WIFF

Adjective & adverb
Colloquial
Askew, awry, to one side; crooked(ly), confused(ly).

Fred Elliott told Maureen that her jars on the shop shelves were skew-whiff. He proceeded to turn them so the labels faced out.

Origins: mid 18th cenutry
From: SKEW adjective & adverb + WHIFF/WIFF noun or verb.

Sorry about the skew -wiff thing, didn't mean to cause any confusion, but looking at tedster's research, it is in fact the best word I could have used to describe what my new window looks like in Opera. (Not that I really care, it still only accounts for something rediculous like 0.05% of the surfing population).

Oh-oh, that .05% happen to be right here at WebMaster World. You are in trouble! ;)

According to StatMarket, usage of Opera is soaring in several European countries. Germany, the Scandinavian countries and Russia are leading the pack, the latter with a whopping 5.8 percent market share for Opera.
